Remember Tone-Loc’s 1988 hit rap “Wild Thing?” Well in 1990 the suits at Turner decided to do a knock-off sung by a guy who I think might be Teddy Long (playa!) and there were even several variations of the video.

We interrupt this one for a special announcement!

For those who have the WWE Network you can see a full uninterrupted version of the rap on Clash of the Champion X and it’s amazing.

And somewhere Tone-Loc weeps quietly to himself and shakes his head…

    Whitest voice ever.

    That sounds nothing like Wild Thing (or Funky Cold Medina).

    I remember the original promo had Lex taking on….SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT (crackle crackle static sound and picture effects) Jim Herd admits his fear of Rocky King made him hire a white announcer to do the rap promo. We now rejoin our original program…Dr. Death for the U.S. Title.

    Way to sell that knee injury, Stinger, laying in the stretcher looking bored.

    I just watched it on WWE Network…very spectacular. When you’re rhyming with “cable company” you know you have a winner!

    “I coulda watch WCW stars do their tumble, but I was busy doing the WrestleRock Rumble…HUH!”
